    This looks so easy and I like the look of it, too.

    I have seen that before. I don't like all that bulk and don't like the "pockets". If you stitch it down you have to be perfect to make it look right. I'll stick to my old method.

    Isn't it fun that there are so many different ways to do the same thing? I know of at least 4 ways to do the flying geese now!

    BTW - if you fold back the loose edges and tack them down, they will curve nicely, makes a very different look. Sort of like the 3-D Cathedral Window.

    I love clever!

    You can tack down the edges, too

    I've been meaning to try this since seeing Ricky Tims on Youtube a while back - he said he learned it in England BTW (just flyin' the flag! LOL) and I'd already thought of using that bias to get a cathedral window effect so thanks to both of you for reminding me! And as for the person who wants to stick to her own way - my Granny would have said 'there's more than one way to skin a cat'!

    I have just tried it and it is very easy and quick. Always nice to have different options on how to make one thing. Thank you
